Elton Records Duet with Engelbert Humperdinck
The BBC reports that John and Humperdinck cut their song in Los Angeles for inclusion an all-star album of duets that Engelbert plans to release next year. “We had a great time singing together,” the BBC quotes John as saying of Humperdinck. “He is so quick, what I call a ‘one-take singer’ — 76 years old and still sounding as good as ever.” Elton added that the older vocalist is “one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever worked with.”
Engelbert, whose birth name is Arnold Dorsey, has sold more than 150 million records worldwide and is best known for his hits “Release Me” and “After the Lovin’.” He called the upcoming duets album a “labor of love,” and added that he’s “honored” that John contributed to the record.
